Gleam Come True

Beach Baby's playful, elegant jewelry

Lei Chic

The votes were cast, the ballots tallied and, after a long night, the people have spoken. It's time to usher some new leaders into your jewelry box.

With that said, we nominate Beach Baby's line of elegant, beach-inspired jewelry.

Designer Catherine Lederer comes with a high approval rating. This Hawaii Kai mother of two started making jewelry four years ago while working full-time as an administrator at Kamehameha Schools. Her creations quickly gained support from family and friends and earned the endorsement of two Sand People boutiques earlier this year.

Look for quality sterling silver, gold-filled and gold vermeil pieces accented with eye-catching beads, coral, pearls and semi-precious stones - designs that can be worn together in an effortless blend of style and texture.

Try layering a bold, Tory Burch-like double chain pyrite necklace studded with gold-rimmed quatrefoil over a delicate Hebrew cone shell necklace. Or throw on some hammered gold-filled hoop earrings dripping with keshi pearls, blue topaz and pink rubies while stacking Mala prayer bead bracelets on your wrist.

When it comes to style, you'll look positively presidential.

This is one stimulus package you won't want to pass on.

$35-$300, available at Sand People in Ala Moana Center and Sand People Waikiki, 2369 Kalakaua Ave., adjacent to Moana Surfrider.
